I work on Renaissance literature, and have a particular interest in classical influences on English writing. I have edited the poems of Shakespeare for the Oxford Shakespeare and of Ben Jonson for the Cambridge Ben Jonson, and have published widely on English writers from 1500-1700. I am presently working on two large projects: a history of Elizabethan literature for the Oxford English Literary History and a study of the idea and practice of literary imitation.
